ECLECTICA CONTEMPORARY

With an increasing focus on African Art around the world, Eclectica Contemporary aims to present a carefully selected and focused collection of art from the continent that interrogates issues facing us in a globalized world. The art at Eclectica Contemporary often showcases practices and materials from art history but which push these boundaries and explore uncharted territories of representation, technique and theory.

Based in Cape Town, South Africa, Eclectica Contemporary sees itself as an African gallery with an international vision. We celebrate the diversity and depth of art making on our continent while aiming to contextualize it for a growing global market.

Our program of exhibitions shows a mix of solo shows by gallery artists alongside curated group shows. In addition, the Eclectica Contemporary exhibition space has facilities for experimental, new media and project-based works.

Black Magic: A Group Exhibition

In our desire to continually explore black voices and experiences, we are adding new faces to this ongoing dialogue. The African continent and the journey of its diaspora is a complex topic in its rich diversity, contextual detail and historical references. African narratives are laden in intersectionality, with conflicting aspects that are entwined in peoples’ reality and lives. These conversations and instances reverberate through Black African identities. The figures in this exhibition embody love, strength, perseverance and pride. Each depicts a presence of liveliness, a determination of uplifted consciousness and the reclamation of dignity, commanding the viewer’s attention.

Truth Be Told

Recorded history is foremost the story of conquerors. Real history is something different. We have invited two multidisciplinary African artists, Williams Chechet (Nigeria) and LegakwanaLeo Makgekgenene (Botswana), to investigate narratives and contested African histories
